Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the Gospel of God (Rom. 1:1) NKJV
DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Separated To The Gospel
Paul did not hesitate to go the way of God after his conversion. He started the work of the ministry immediately. When God saw his zeal and enthusiasm for the work, he then commissioned him and Barnabas as apostles to the Gentiles. The Holy Spirit said “Separate unto me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them” (v. 2). Then the church prayed for them and the elders in Antioch laid hands on them and sent them away into the mission (v. 3). What specific ministry have you been commissioned for? Are you fulfilling God’s mandate and expectation in your ministry? As a believer in Christ, know that the “Great Commission” is every believer’s ministry in addition to the specific one. So, go and preach the gospel to all creatures.
Point of Emphasis: You have been sent by Christ, go and preach the gospel.
Prayer Point: Help me to separate and dedicate my life unto the gospel of Christ.
